The Better Angels Workshop teaches skills for how to have respectful conversations that clarify differences, search for common ground, and affirm the importance of maintaining relationships despite differences. Lunch will be provided. Registration required.
For purposes of practicing the skills, we ask you to identify as either a “Red” (leaning conservative and tending to vote for Republicans) or “Blue” (leaning liberal/progressive and tending to vote for Democrats). If you see yourself as an Independent who votes equally for both parties, then please pick a side just for this workshop.
If you're unclear about which side to choose, think about which side you would like to converse with more effectively, and choose the other side. For instance, if you wish you could do better with talking to Reds, choose to be Blue for the workshop; if you wish you could do better with talking to Blues, then choose to be Red for the workshop.
We're committed to helping our community cultivate curiosity through educational and entertaining programs on a wide variety of topics. Let's learn together!
